Treasure Island

Little Boy Prince


When I was born.
I was chosen to run free.
I had a dream last night,
of sweets, chocolates and ambrosia.
And in the midst.
Of all the smoke and debris.
There I stand, wondering?
Will I be free?
And my dream came true.

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
